Ballroom Latin and Salsa (RUBLS)
We run Ballroom and Latin dance classes on Mondays in Wessex Hall dining room, 7.00pm-8.00pm for Beginners and 8.00pm-9.00pm for Improvers/Advanced.
We also have our Salsa lessons on Thursdays in Wessex Hall dining room, 7.00pm-8.00pm for Beginners and 8.00pm-9.00pm for Improvers.
In addition, we are running practice sessions on Wednesday afternoons free for our members, so you can socialise more with your fellow dancers and practice what you have learnt in the lessons. These are also held in Wessex. Salsa 4.00pm-5.00pm, Ballroom & Latin 5.00pm-6.00pm.
We have a Facebook page and we're new to Twitter (@RU_Dancing) too. Join/follow us to keep up to date with special classes, social events and all the dancing news. We're a very social club and hold many events throughout the year including themed nights out, movie and quiz nights and our very own spring ball. We also compete at inter-university competitions across the country and have set up our own Salsa Fiesta (competition) which has been running for the past two years.
Membership for students is £25 for the year, which includes both ballroom and salsa classes. Membership will also get you a fantastic 15% off in Dancia International (located in Caversham) where you can buy ballroom and latin shoes as well as other dance wear.
Class prices: £4 one hour for members and £6 for non-members. Stay for the second hour for just £1! (That's two hours for £5 members and £7 non-members)
Please note, we ask that you purchase the membership via this page due to the need for everyone to have Sports Fed. insurance.
During the summer of 2012 Reading University Dance Club were awarded a grant with the purpose of purchasing a new soundsystem and camcorder for the club, both for the lessons and any events. We are pleased to say that we now have this shiny new equipment, and are extremely grateful to the UoR Alumni for enabling us to do so.
The first fruits of this can be seen on our YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/Readingdanceclub), where you will find footage of members of the club performing at competitions and shows as well. It is a great way for you to check out what we do!
